Nicholas Zaldastani had not paid his employees at Fatcat animation for weeks prior to this event and weeks after. He did however give them $100.00 on the Friday before the event. Nicholas had stopped paying the premiums for the employees health insurance and as a result it was stopped. He never informed anyone at the studio that he stopped paying. It was when an employee went to the doctors and was told that Smith Administrators was not covering any benefits. She was told to contact Nicholas Zaldastani. Nicholas Zaldastani never returned any calls or emails from employees as to why their medical benefits were canceled. Yet he paid over $80,000.00 to sponsor this event.
